Ind. Gov't. - "Fear of lawsuits unites Indiana Chamber against 'religious freedom' bill"

That is the title to John Ketzenberger's long Sunday column. A quote:

The Indiana Chamber opposes SB 101 because of the costs associated with it, Carter said. The actual cost of dealing with the discrimination lawsuits many believe will arise if the state law passes the legislation is the obvious concern, but the chamber also worries about the cost of lost opportunities if Indiana is perceived as a less-welcoming place for people with a variety of religious beliefs — or none at all.

"We think it could damage the Indiana brand, if you will," [Cameron Carter, the Indiana Chamber's vice president of economic development and federal relations] said.
